That’s what we needed and why he will play in the next game. If Callum plays like that, then he can be a really serious player.”

Who you want to see start tomorrow???
Opinion: Whatever has befallen Timo Werner is caused by Frank Lampard. Timo is not a player that can dribble.
He shouldn’t be played on the wing by no reason. A winger is a dribbler and a cutter, something Timo can’t do. He needs to played in his natural role. Frank is the problem for this team right now.
